Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: *New* Grateful Dead master class free online with Dave Frank: Exploring Dark Star!

Thanks so much Dave! You've got Dark Star bad and that is good.

Wow. Being no musician myself I usually like to "let the mystery be" as to why and how my favourite popular music sounds so good. But Dark Star is so strong that analysis of this kind is well rewarded.

This is unreservedly recommended to all forumites. Two suggestions: first of all open a secoond browser tab with Dave's notes http://www.davefrankjazz.com/ustream/dead/dead.html
Second suggestion: set up your own copy of Live Dead to play alongside Dave's playback of the whole song at the end.

I look forward to "attending" more of Dave's masterclasses (Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett etc.). And to the ones on "That's It For The Other One", "Alligator", "The Eleven", "Lovelight", "Eyes Of The World" etc.
